These nippy little creatures do have a look of a bandit with that brilliant black stripe across their eye area. Such a treat to get one's lens wrapped round one of these... Gorgeous colours, that steely, metallic blue and a peachy, orange chest... and check out the orange and white underpants... perhaps I should have called this 'style bandit' ?
Taken yesterday, whilst wearing a branch from an oak tree (for camouflage of course), at my secret little place within hearing distance of the thundering waterfalls at Low Force, Upper Teesdale...
Thanks for looking and for your patience...
